  4. Eine Betrachtung von Kolophonen Mathematischen Inhalts auf Mesopotamischen Tontafeln.Christine Proust - 2012 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 20 (3):123-156.
    ZusammenfassungKolophone sind kurze Vermerke, die manchmal am Rand von Keilschrifttexten zu finden sind. In ihnen sind Angaben zum Text und dessen Verarbeitung, insbesondere der Tontafeln, zu finden und sie geben damit Aufschluss über den Zusammenhang, in dem die Dokumente erstellt worden sind. Im Beitrag werden am Beispiel altbabylonischer mathematischer Texte die Beziehungen zwischen der Zusammensetzung von Kolophonen, der Art von Tafeln, die sie enthalten und dem Inhalt der Texte, denen diese Kolophone hinzugefügt worden sind, untersucht. Dabei werden zuerst die Probleme (...)

    A Mathematician's Journeys: Otto Neugebauer and Modern Transformations of Ancient Science.John Steele, Christine Proust & Alexander Jones (eds.) - 2016 - Springer Verlag.
    Otto Neugebauer’s early academic career was marked by a series of transitions. His interests shifted from physics to mathematics, and finally to the history of ancient mathematics and exact sciences. Yet even from his early years in Graz, Neugebauer was strongly attracted to the mathematical culture of Göttingen. When he arrived there in 1922, he quickly established a strong personal friendship with Richard Courant, the newly appointed Director of the Mathematics Institute. Neugebauer and Courant worked together closely up until 1933, (...)
